|Here at St Andrew’s Church we are looking forward to the great beauty of the coming months and for the special grace that comes from living together in our community of faith—so join us in many things—and make it a point to be with us each week to break bread together!

OUR ADULT BIBLE STUDY meets every Tuesday morning at 8:22 am over in the Parish Hall. This past week we had an awesome conversation! Come share a cup of coffee and some thoughts with us!
HAVE SOMEONE SPECIAL YOU’D LIKE US ALL TO PRAY FOR? Our Sunday Prayer List is just the thing! If you can get here a few minutes before worship, we leave the prayer list out on the table for everyone to add their own names—so just go for it! AND—we’ll be praying for all those on the list at every worship during the following weekdays.
GO TAKE A LONG WALK…to help out our hungry neighbors! St Andrew’s Church is proud once again to join many others on the island in the annual CROP Walk for Hunger, and you can help in two ways: go find Sandy and / or Wesley Mott (usually at the 10:00 am service), and let them know you’d like to donate a few bucks, or walk with them and ask some others to donate a few bucks. (If it’s easier, you can email Sandy and Wesley directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just let Father Chip know what you’d like to do.) Either way, support the effort and join the throngs of faithful on Sunday afternoon, October 19, and take a delightful, long walk together! Registration begins that day at St Augustine’s Church, Vineyard Haven, at 1:20 pm. And get your friends involved for a whale of a time!
WE COULD SURE USE A COUPLE OR THREE COFFEE HOUR HOSTS to get on our rotating schedule—it‘s a wonderful ministry to host an after-party following our Sunday celebrations! Please see Cindy Flanders after worship, or call her at 939-9375, or email her at email@example.com. Great ministry—give it a go!
THIS IS THE MV NEIGHBORHOOD CONVENTION’S 120TH YEAR of monthly get-togethers at our island places of worship to hear speakers, join in some prayer and song, and share a sack lunch together.
